[Esso] Redeem 10,000 optimum points for $10 off Gas/ 5000 points for ANY car wash - Ottawa only?

Went to Esso to fill up and saw this at the pump.

Redeem 10,000 points per day for $10 off your gas bill, or 5000 points for a free car wash. Expires Jan 15-2021 at select Ottawa locations. Maybe YMMV?

Please update if available in GTA or country wide.

See attached photo.

Edit: Added car wash info, forgot about that, also by looking at photo it looks like ANY car wash is 5000 points.

Edit: Able to read T&C from photo:

*Offer valid until January 15, 2021 at participating locations where advertised. See in store for a full list of participating locations. Only redeemable at points level specified in offer, in a single transaction, to a maximum of $10 or a single car wash (where available for redemption). Limit of one redemption per PC Optimum account in a 24 hour period (in accordance with President's Choice Services Inc's official records). A valid PC Optimum or President's Choice Financial Mastercard must be swiped at the pump or a PC Optimum card, PC Optimum app, or PC Financial Mastercard must be scanned or swiped at the station as part of the payment transaction in order for the PC Optimum points to be redeemed on fuel, convenience or car wash purchases, as applicable. Redemption not available using phone number entry or the Speedpass+ app. Taxes payable on full purchase price before application of reward discount. Points are not redeemable for cash or credit. We are not obligated to award or redeem points based on errors or misprints. PC Optimum points redemption excludes purchase of tobacco, lottery tickets, alcohol, gift cards, all prepaid cards, transit/event tickets, post office transactions, passport photos, cash back, delivery charges, all non-participating 3rd party operations and any other products which are provincially regulated or as we determine from time to time. Esso Extra points cannot be earned or redeemed in the same transaction as PC Optimum points.

Phew! That was A LOT of typing. Lol

Depends on the car wash, if you buy them anyways, that could present decent value.

I think he means that 10k for 10 bucks is the normal value for points (you'd get more value using a bonus redemption event).

Hey, don't hate guys! :)

First time I see Esso allowing redemptions. Usually it's collect only at their stations.

I know, most RFD'ers use them at SDM for electronics, but this is another way to redeem points other than doing it that way, and who likes paying for gas, am I right?

I think the redemption value for 'any car wash' is the deal here. $5000 = $5 per wash is hot. Esso washes are good.

Edit: Also, Esso washes are all touchless around me which is preferred which sweeten this deal. Touchless Luxury Wash for $5 flaming hot

Yeah it's normal value for the gas redemption.

Although, from what my pic shows, any car wash is 5000 points. Next time I go to an Esso I'll confirm. Cant find T&C online, and pic too blurry. Unless someone else can confirm it faster than me.

5000 points for any car wash seems really good to me.

Correct - valuation is the same as usual, but normally you cannot redeem for gas/car washes... only groceries at Loblaw banners.
